I am not in need of this module but what would be the best way to allow users to login on the start page? Thank you!

If you maintain a private forum like I do, and want the log in page to show up at the index.php page, then do this trick that I did, described here....

[www.phorum.org]

By implementing this trick, there is no need to click the "Log In" link at the top. It shows up on the main page if the visitor is not logged in.

As an aside, let me take this opportunity to cry and whine a little more about how the Invitations part of this module would be so beautiful if it was a stand alone module, and if it didnt require that someone actually have been sent an invitation in order to register. Currently my members have to send people a link to the location of the forum. I tried activating this mod so that users could invite others via their control panel, but then when someone came along who was simply sent a link, their registration would be denied because they didn't get an invitation ID from within.

Thanks for sharing but it does not work for my private and public Phorum.

Yeah, mine is totally private, so nothing gets displayed at all to non-logged in guests, which is when that template file is called and why it works for me.

Why not take that same code and put it in your footer.tpl file? Then the public portion of your phorum will still be displayed to guests, but they will see the log in form at the bottom of the page. Once logged in, it would disappear.

You could even put it in somewhere in the header.tpl file, but then I would make some serious changes in the HTML to make it much smaller.

The module has been installed, but not enable in my admim yet.
There is a warning displayed in Modules:
Warning: possible module "forum_lockdown_v5_2_1_03" found, but no module information is available for that module.
Is this normal? Can I go ahead and turn it on?

Thank

Nick

Nick, in order to install a module you need to upload all of the files in the module's zip file to the {phorum_root}/mods folder. In this case it sounds like you simply uploaded the zip file itself. When properly installed, you should have a {phorum_root}/mods/forum_lockdown folder with (amongst others) a {phorum_root}/mods/forum_lockdown/forum_lockdown.php file. You should also see a README, Changelog, and Settings link for this module in the module section. Hope this helps, let me know if you have more questions.

When I unzipped the folder, it created a sub-folder and was buried in it. I changed it and tried again. I see it displayed in the Module now.
Thanks
PS: Do you know how I go about opening my header.tpl file so I can redirect the login to my main website?

This might be similar to Robert Angle's problem. In general I want to veryify emails for registrations, and that feature works by itself. When I enable Forum Lockdown, then the verify isn't working. I want them to have to verify their email before I approve the invitation request. Otherwise a person could make the request with the wrong email, and I've just invited a total stranger onto my system.

Can I get both features to work simultaneously?

sorry for digging out this old thread.
Just asking...after we lock the forum, how can we still allow google to crawl the contents?
